H&S Induction

Handbook and H&S Test
Researchers joining the department must complete a series of H&S induction courses before starting work in the laboratory (you will receive an e-mail outlining the courses you need to complete). The courses include:

  • An Introduction to Fire Safety for Lab-based Science Schools
  • Safe Working in Laboratories
  • Chemistry Induction
  • Risk Assessment for Science Schools
  • User Guide to the CHARM System

Depending on your role you may also be asked to complete the following courses:

  • Display Screen Equipment
  • Manual Handling
  • Slips, Trips and Falls

We ask you to complete the H&S induction within 7 days of your start date, but would strongly suggest this is completed as soon as possible. No laboratory work or risk assessments should be submitted until all H&S courses have been completed.
